Today we leave Prague proper to visit the Sychrov Castle. The trip is about 1 hour 15 minutes, depending on traffic, accidents, and the road condition. Travel in Eastern Europe is always an adventure. Do not time your travel as you would in the U.S. Take your time and enjoy (you seldom have a choice any way). This trip involved major construction, …
We took the city tour first stopping at the Church that is now a library containing many thousands of volumes dating back to the 10th century.
Walked over cobblestones passing monuments and decorative light fixtures and on down to the castle where I took pictures of the city includig the castle and pictures of Emilie's windows in the …
... old town and tourist attractions are less spread out. Unlike our apartment in Budapest, we didn't have to deal with multiple locking gates – much easier entrance into the apartment. It was nice enough inside, and would serve as a comfortable home base for our few days in Prague.
After setting our stuff down in the apartment, we needed to get dinner. We walked around the Vinohrady neighborhood and saw several options, and finally ...
... to bed but I headed in to experience the night life of Prague with my new besties! The following day we ended up at the movies, first time in a long time! It could have been a learning experience as there were czech subtitles however we watched World War Z, and I feel the term 'the zombies are coming, run' wouldn't really come in handy. We headed to Prague in the evening as Caits friend from high school is currently here so we caught up with him and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Diplomat Hotel Prague
We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of January 2005 and were more than happy with our choice. Getting from the airport couldn't be easier, you just catch the 119 bus from outside the airport terminal and it terminates right outside the hotel. Buy a cheap travelcard from the airport which covers you for all transport including buses, trams, the metro and even the funicular up Petrin Hill.
Nice but not near the city center
The rooms were nice but not near the city center. We changed hotels after the first night.
Stayed for 2 nights at this hotel, staff more than helpful. When leaving airport take bus number 119 and this will drop you wright outside the Diplomat hotel, and on return the bus for the airport is just across the street, very reasonable about Pound return. The hotel is also close to the underground station, and only 3 stops to Prague old town which takes 5 minutes. There is a lovely little local bar across the street which does good food very reasonable and inexpensive worth a visit for supper, and night cap, which will not break the bank
I stayed at this hotel for three nights and was impressed. Rooms were spacious, nicely furnished and very clean. Buffet breakfast had a huge selection of great food.
The hotel is located right next to the metro station, making it very convenient. As well, bus 119 from the airport drops you off right in front of the hotel. I booked this hotel for under $100 per night and I thought it was a fair price.
Drawbacks, the fitness center/sauna seen in the description costs 400 Kc/per day ($18) to use, which I found a little bit ridiculous. Also, hotel staff seems very indifferent, but I guess that is not unusual for a former communist country.
Stayed here in December 2004 on first visit to Prague first class
hotel. Location may not suit some but ideal for those who do not
mind a 2 minute trip to by metro to get into the hub of things.
Breakfast better than most European establishments. I work in the
industry so have lots to compare to. That good I have booked to return
this year in March for my second visit.
This is generally a nice hotel. Our room at the fifth floor was of adequate size and nicely furnished. It was clean and well equipped, although sometimes they did not replenish the mini bar and the coffee/tea facilities and we had to ask for whatever was missing.
Hotel was great 10-15 mins walk to the castle, another 10 from there to the Charles Bridge. Also 15 mins bus ride from airport on the 119 bus.
The subway, Dejvicka, is right outside and takes you wherever you want to go and is like 10p a ride, very very cheap, and frequent clean & safe.
The rooms were clean & tidy we paid £45 a room per night,
Breakfast was nice.
Didnt try the hotel facilities though, but staff were friendly, and helpful.
You'll enjoy Prague from this hotel.
Good but expensive
If you don't want to be in town, the Hotel Diplomat is a good choice. It is comfortable and the service is very good. I was impressed that my deluxe room had an electrical outlet for 110-volt appliances, so that I could plug in my American laptop and recharge my palm pilot and iPod without converters or transformers. My room also had an internt connection and the hotel provided me with a logon and password for a local ISP so that I could work easily from my room.
It's expensive, though, especially given Prague prices. My room wasn't anywhere near $100 a night (as a previous reviewer stated) -- more like $240.
I was very pleased with the Diplomat Hotel. If you are looking for a hotel that is not in the center of the city and want an area that is a little quieter, I recommend this hotel. The rooms were a good size and clean, and the breakfast buffet had a pretty wide variety. You're steps away from the metro, so it's easy to get around the city. The only problem I had was how smoky it becomes in the lobby from the cigarettes. But you're in Europe, so it's expected.
We found this hotel online and got a room for under $100 a night in September. It was one of the best hotels I've stayed at anywhere, and I'd highly recommend it. My boyfriend was really worried about going to Prague because he considered the Czech Republic to be more of a second world country. He was very relieved when we arrived at the hotel.
